Video Kandi Mossett: Defend the Rights of Mother Earth

Growing up and living in North Dakota, Kandi Mossett has experienced firsthand what oil development can do to communities. She is a member of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nations on the Fort Berthold Reservation and works with the Indigenous Environmental Network, organizing with tribes to fight the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Kandi says "there are sacred sites out here, there are burial sites out here, there's places that are holy that they want to just bulldoze right through." Watch for more on her story.
